6 stranger things in Talent Management Systems

Why are you keeping this curiosity door locked? Open it and understand the current trends in talent management system and how you can master the game of keeping your employees safe from the Demogorgon, hailing from the kingdom of the ‘better workplace’.

“To win in the marketplace, you must first win in the workplace." -Doug Conant

Talent management is not an effortless job. It starts right from the moment an application drops in, to the second where the employee exits. It goes without a doubt that people are the breadth and width of a company and anything and everything related to them must be handled with utmost care and precision.

Screening, hiring, onboarding, engaging, nurturing, it all seems like a  strenuous job and it most certainly is, or rather, ‘was’. With the onset of technology and the rise of gazillions of HR software, it has now become simple, as it provides a one stop HR solution.

The impact of technology on talent management has been more than huge. HR software is in and is here to win. As employees all of us might have run to our manager at the 'eleventh' hour for a day off and as managers we have received the last minute calls. Many employees have gone “Will Byers” (yes! Vanished into thin air!) right on the day of an activity or engagement.

Challenges or ‘stranger things’ in a talent management system

  1. Wrong recruitment decisions
  2. Endless tension while hiring
  3. Tiring screening procedures 
  4. Long on boarding processes 
  5. Sudden employee burnout 
  6. Lack of employee engagement

Every company would have witnessed at least one among these and the list is never ending. These are tales of the past with the latest technology driven, HR softwares. Hiring, engaging, nurturing and managing is just a click away! These platforms act as a Gen Z Nostradamus, which can foresee the future to a great extent. Proactive, and regularly updated ML algorithms will make sure that your company not only stays in the race but also wins the race. 

HR software has made its way to the daily vocabulary of successful and emerging companies. Friends don’t lie and neither should an HR. The software ensures that the employee gets a 720 degree of understanding about the organization and how it works. It helps in every step of an employee lifecycle; right from hiring to the day of exit. The software acts as a helping aid in setting individual employee goals and helps the managers to assign tasks.

All it takes is a little appreciation

Mary Kay Ash said, “Everyone wants to be appreciated, so if you appreciate someone, don’t keep it a secret”. The brilliantly integrated AI and data analytics in the HR software makes sure that there is a platform where each employee is heard, respected and valued.

They can ideate, suggest and give opinions. They can also plan their leaves and apply for them beforehand. HR software is the best solution to workplace problems.


The idea is simple; your employees can be a Troy, Lucas, Dustin, Nance or even a demogoron for that matter. The point is to score an ‘eleven’ on ten in talent management. And you can do it with as much ease as singing a song with the right technology!
